An Interview with Professor Xav Briggs

An interview with Professor Xav Briggs about his time in Washington DC working in the Obama Administration. Briggs has a national reputation for his work on social capital and the 'geography of opportunity' – a policy and research field concerned with the consequences of segregation by race and income and with efforts to respond, such as through ‘housing mobility’ programs that help families exit high-poverty, high-risk neighborhoods in search of better places to raise their children.
